Coppiced Hazel-How long before it has to be worked

Post by Wiccan warrior »

Hi. I'm new to wood crafts but I'm learning the old ways and have a lot of Hazel on my land. I am looking to start making hurdles. I am about to start coppicing hazel rods but need to know whether they should be worked within a certain time frame once cut. Or, can they be stored and soaked when required later in the year. I don't want to cut more than I can use.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Regards, Mal.

Also, anyone experienced in bodging etc., that would like a cheap break in beautiful Limousin (France) in exchange for helping develop my skills please feel free to contact me.
We have 24 acres of beautiful historic land with lovely spots for back to basics camping.
